CHARLOTTE, N.C. - On Monday night, City Council members got an earful from Dilworth residents who said they don't want a new Walgreens.
Those residents have been fighting Lincoln Harris' plans to build the drugstore at East Morehead Street and Kenilworth Avenue. They told city leaders that they think the project will hurt
Dilworth's character and open the door for similar stores in a historic part of town.
“This development is certain to create tremendous pressure for additional retail development along this fragile edge of the Dilworth neighborhood,” said Dilworth resident John Fryday.
The council could vote on the Walgreens next month.
